him about 18 days to make the passage from lasa to india, and during that time, president eisenhower received radio reports from the c.i.a. director, every other day. charting the progress of the tibetans, the c.i.a. had managed to train and put in place some agents, who could accompany the dalai lama on a very hazardous journey through the mountains, and eisenhower was in almost realtime getting information about what was happening. thanks to geshae. geshae was brought down to washington to a safe house in georgetown to translate the radio reports coming out of tibet about the dalai lama and his movement. once he was safely out, a full fledged guerrilla operation began. i think the tibetan national uprising in which some 85,000 tibetans lost their lives, was probably the high watermark of that resistance. many of the weapons that had been flown into tibet and parachuted down to the himalayas came as a result of the american support operation. the dalai lama himself never personally sanctioned this violence. in fact, he was very dubious and for a long time, the united states is the c

of the europeans and particularly in conquered india, as the prime concern. we can easily think of m blocks today. hits observation in fact is one of the few solid and enduring principles of international and domestic affairs. well to keep in mind. at the food crisis is a case in point. it erupted first and most dramatically in haiti in the early 2008, and like bangladesh, haiti is a symbol of the utter misery. like bangladesh, when the european explorers arrived, they said they were stunned because it was so remarkably rich in resources. later it became the source of much of france's wealth. i am not going to run through this sordid history but the current food crisis traces back directly to woodrow wilson's invasion of haiti, which was murderous and brutal and destructive. among wilson's many crimes was to dissolve the haitian parliament at gunpoint, because if refused to pass what was called progressive legislation which would allow u.s. businesses to take over haitian lance. wilson marines then ran a free election in which the legislation was passed by 99.9% of the vote. that is of the 5% of

, india and pakistan, they are not bound by the treaty, but iran is. iran violated that treaty in approximate a series of different respects and iran has been sanctioned by the united nations for those violations. the sanctions are too weak to cause a change in iran's behavior, but at least it it demonstrates iran has violated the treaty responsibilities. the fact is that while iran has the right to develop electricity from nuclear power plants, they are flaring their natural gas they could generate electricity for a couple kilo watt. >> host: why are they? >> guest: they have no way to export it, liquiified natural gas plant to markets. >> host: back to afghanistan, full page, photograph for afghans, a new test of democracy, their presidential election. their elections are coming up in 10 days, i believe august 20th. what are your hopes for the election? >> guest: a fair and free election would be outstanding step toward building afghanistan as a state. i can't tell you that i'd vote for this candidate or that can d candidate? >> host: is karz ai the best candidate to hav

to pass a resolution in the u.n. council on human-rights. india, another rising power and the world's most populous democracy, is traditionally not inclined to support our western inclination to support human rights and economic pressure and military intervention. nor are many of the growing economic power centers in the world, brazil or in the call. not only has the world not converting around our own democratic norms, but according to a survey, global freedom to his third year of decline in 2008, but nearly powerful democratic nations do not share our view of how to conduct foreign policy. the liberal interventionism has generated much debate in britain. but the varying degrees, all have subscribed to it. the economic conditions have enjoyed some support as has military intervention in many countries. iraq being a much more controversial case, but heavily supported at the time. we're all agreed that we would try to intervene in another situation. but in the years and decades to come, the rise of other nations will constrain our ability to act in this way. a further constraint will come i
into that matter tonight. >>> and from india, a picture you have to see to believe. #. >> reporter: hundreds of infants were dropped from the roof of a mosque in western india. see for yourself. >> reporter: the children mostly under the age of two are caught in a bed sheet, the families are guaranteed good health and prosperity. >> that is what you call a bouncing baby boy. children's advocates not pleased. that brings us to our friday night punch line brought to us by jon stewart. he is stunned that republicans have a claim that health care includes euthanizing senior citizens. >> rumor has it that older american citizens would be put out to pasture. >> i have been told there is a clause in there that everyone that medicare age will be visited and told to decide how they wish to die. >> actually that is a provision for hospice care and counseling. tell her, obama. >> you know, i guarantee you first of all, we just don't have enough government workers to send to talk to everybody to find out how they want to die. >> mr. president, i'm not sure you want to go with dry witt on this one. >> jo
, whether that's new or not, india or pakistan possess nuclear weapons. >> right. >> and as it stands, those are just accepted responsible nations, so-called responsible nations. and then we saw pakistan and india go to war just a few years ago. threatening each other and they were told not to. is it a wise policy now to allow iran, knowing that -- >> to allow -- >> allow iran or to allow po persist or to go ahead with the nuclear armament? knowing that iraq and iran fought each other with the chemical weapons and how iran is threatening other countries in the middle east? and the religious fundamentalists are threatening each other. and now they're trying to contain that but from what i get from yours, it's all a superpower ideology, of course, that is true during the cold war. >> so let me try and answer your question about iranian -- the iranian effort to acquire nuclear weapons assuming that is what they are trying to do. i think we have to look at this in terms of two issues. one is the issue of nuclear proliferation generally and this relates to the faithlessness of the existing nuclea
india. we learned from democrat senator claire mccaskill that, quote, if we go too far with this, that is cap and trade, then all we are going to do is chase more jobs to china and india where they've been putting up coal-fired plants every 10 minutes. in sum, we have a slew of hearings in three unsuccessful votes on the senate floor. actually i'd say four because we rejected the kyoto treaty in the beginning. the democrats taught us that cap and trade is a great big tax and will raise electricity prices on consumers i would have to say in a regressive way, send jobs to china and india all without any impact on global temperature, so off we go into the august recess secure in the knowledge that cap and trade is riddled with flaws and that democrats are seriously divided over one of president obama's top domestic policy priorities. and we also know that according to a recent polling the american public is increasingly unwilling to pay anything, as the polling has shown, to fight global warming. but all this does not mean cap and trade is dead and gone. it's very much alive as demo
popular people in the world. i remember when he went to india. he became such a national hero in india that indians forgot about their own leaders at that time. when he went to ireland, the same thing. he's a very charming person. he is a very likable person. you see his body language. he disarms you. so he was just the right person for our country to use to free these young ladies. >> larry: couple of other notes. franklin, how's your dad? how's billy graham? >> well, thank you for asking, larry. he's doing quite well. he'll be 91 this year of course but his mind is still clear, sharp. he remembers everything and he loves you and he's watching tonight. >> larry: your mother passed when? >> two years ago this past june. my father misses her so very much. she was his soulmate. they were partners in life together. they really had a real love story. he was i think more in love with her the last few years of their marriage than they were when they first were married. a great lover to. she was an incredible lady. a lot of fun. >> larry: she was. deepak, what part in all of this do you think
are getting word that a 7.6 magnitude earthquake has struck near india's island. this is being felt in a number of countries. we're hearing even tokyo was shaken because of this. it's also called a tsunami watch and that watch covers india, myanmar, thailand, indonesia, bangladesh, as well. so, it could cause quite a bit of damage. we have a tsunami watch for all of those countries. it was a large magnitude quake, a 7.6 magnitude quake near india's island, but it's being felt in a number of countries including right in tokyo. they felt the aftershocks of it. >> wow. betty, there's some other news you're following right now, as well, right? >> absolutely. we want to talk gas prices making a steady upward climb. take a look at this. it's risen every day since july 21st when the national average price per gallon was $2.46. well, today it is up to $2.65, up 19 cents in just 20 days. analysts expect the price to peak as high as $2.70 a gallon, still well below last summer's record high prices. >>> and a wave of deadly bombings in iraq mass left at least 48 people dead and more than 400 i
-- the manufacturing jobs that were in america and were moved to countries like india and china. i think that they are experiencing an industrial revolution much like what we saw in the 20th-century. i think that they are developing a middle-class while we are losing our middleclass. i also think that for an economy to do well, there has to be a strong middle-class. that is indicative when you look at consumer spending indexes. we just don't have the money. we don't have the dollars because we don't have manufacturing jobs that developed are middle-class. guest: that is exactly right. that is the essence of the book, which is that china and india have replicated the success in developing this industrialized economy. by opening of their labor force to more exploitation, it does speak to the myth of gdp. you have a growth but poverty grows at the same time. the loss of manufacturing jobs is really such a central element to both this recession and the declining living standards in terms of the exploitation of people, but declining marriage rates, unraveling of our society and many other cou
visit to india in 2006, david cameron said that he believed it was time for britain and india to forge a new special relationship, focusing particularly on fighting terrorism, protecting the environment, and globalization. india is also a leading member of the commonwealth, which has been valued on to the labour -- which as been devalued in the labour gouvernment. it is extraordinary diversity offers some straight, a unique network of 53 countries spanning five continents with 30% of the world's population. we believe the commonwealth is a tool to be picked up and used more often, to help dialogue and conflict prevention, taking a leading role in addressing state failure by coordinating up future rehabilitation package for its former member, zimbabwe. get the commonwealth is not the only group of countries where we can recreate historic connections on a new modern basis. i have long argued that britain should embark on the elevation of its links with many countries of the middle east in the gulf. not only diplomatically, but in matters of culture, education, commerce, and security. thi
type that india is looking to purchase. >> reporter: and the same type that now functioned last year, killing 20 people onboard. eric wortham works for the naval institute and wrote a book on the world's combat ships. he said by sending subs to the east coast. >> they're showing our submar e submarines are still viable, our ships are powerful. and this is why you can still view russian weapons as something you can purchase. >> reporter: russian subs haven't been this close to the u.s. coast in over ten years. >> there's abeffon effort to pr force around the world. >> i tell you no one is alarmed by it because nobody is. >> reporter: this is about making money, not war. india used to buy planes from russia but inked a $2 billion for the seller of this aircraft, the seller, american company, boeing. >> russia is concerned that foreign customers are not looking to them anymore as a leader in the export market. >> these subs are in international rat waters and paf regular control. india is releasing two of the subs with the option to buy. joe, kiran. >> chris lawrence, thank you so much
'd bng in ladies shoes from india at $5 you'd add a dollar on for the insurance and freight and you'd sell them by the container loads on duane street in new york city and your income statement would be $150,000 in revenue. your cost of goods sold would be 130, your gross profit would be 20 and your fixed profit would be 12 and you would make $8,000 before tax and that was my business model. and that comme by that child in 1982 has been what i've been thinking about almost nonstop for the last 27 years. how do you teach capitalism? how do you teach ownership? how do you teach people to control financial assets, their time and their thoughts. people who have been excluded from the system. people that have not been given a chance to participate in markets and in capitalism and instead many times have had markets used against them by accident. that's what i've been thinking about, for the '80s, for the next 7 1/2 years i rotated around it. i went to very difficult schools. i worked on one thing over and over again to develop a course, to develop a teaching methodology and lesson plans
of its relationship with india, and most of all feels that this constructive engagement is likely to end, once pakistan ceases to be of strategic use to america. all political groups here asked the u.s. to use soft power and economic growth to resolve the intractable conflict that continues to spread through this region. anita mcnaught, al jazeera in islamabad. >> if you want to get a sense what american diplomats working in pakistan are sometimes up against, consider this account we came across earlier this week in "the new york times." it describes a recent meeting between the obama administration's new under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, that's judith mchale, and a pakistani journalist. according to the "times," she told him how america wants to build bridges to the muslim world. his response, quoting now, "you should know that we hate all americans. from the bottom of our souls, we hate you." >>> and now to our weekly roundtable. our look back at some of the week's most important international news stories. tonight we'll discuss the presidential election
it got in east india today, where typhoon seon is making a mess of things across the season. torrential rains, flooding in taiwan caused buildings to collapse. triggered a mudslide in one mountain vilge that reportedly buried up to 600 people. a pair of powerful earthquakes to report tonight as well. a 6.6 quake centered about 100 miles southwest of tokyo shook some buildings, forced a halt to the bullet train, in fact. no casualties or serious damage reported early on. and a 7.6 quake centered 20 miles down below the indian ocean, north of the andaman islands, triggered a tsunami watch for some time. a lot of it roughly the same region you'll recall devastated by that massive tsunami 4 1/2 years ago now. >>> general motors announced today it's boldly entering the era of ebay. the company says it hopes to soon offer its entire line of cars and trucks on the website where potential gm customers can bid on them. gm, as you may know, is undergoing a top-to-bottom rebuild. it just got out of bankruptcy. this rollout would start in california at first, and if it's successful, it would go on
-- question was on the geography between pakistan and india. is it critical that the united states try to play a role? that's on really problematic with respect to the indians in terms of defusing tensions between india and pakistan. is that outside 9 postal -- the portfolio of this group? >> it is outside the portfolio of my job. on the other hand, i am in constant touch with the indians. i met with the indians continually. the new ambassador in washington and i have had dinner recently and she and i are in close touch. i go to indio whenever the schedule permits. i stress we're completely transparent. the secretary of state and my close colleague assistant secretary for south asia, central asian affairs bob blake and i were in india recently and the indians are a major factor in the region. they're the dominant power. improveb -- improving u.s.-indian relations ha been a continual goal of the last three u.s.strations, all which i think have been successful in that regard, starting with president clinton's trip in 2000. i will keep the indians fully informed and i have an indian counterpart w
in proportion to their economy are doing the best right now. look at india. it's growing. look at the companies that have increased their spending. united states as a percent of g.d.p. they are still shrinking. it's not about helping the economy. it's about redistributing wealth. you don't have to just impact companies or alter the can i of companies that have received tarp money because pay is competitive. if a bank has received tarp money has gotten a cut. >> the thing that bothers me most about this whole pay czar statement is where he says i have the discretion. the concept of the czar is fundamentally at odds with the constitution of the american people. >> there are regulations that have been promulgated. they are gite clearly delineated. he can say what he wants but he does not have unlimited discretion here. one of the things he has to take into account is retaining people at these companies. the market value of those employees. >> i'm not worried about feinberg. i'm worried about another pay czar. nancy pelosi. what if she raises taxes on people making more than $100,000. that's scary.
consumer is currently equal to the total economy of china plus india doubled. so when governments around the world are spend ag lot of money, they will not be able to do that indefinitely. at some point the american consumer has to get back into the market. so is he or she doing that? well, we don't really know that. the housing data is good news, and actually, most recoveries begin with recovery of the housing markets followed by automobiles, appliances and then other consumer categories. but many experts argue that this is not an ordinary recession and will not be an ordinary recovery. the consumer went deep into debt over the last ten years, is slowly paying that off and won't get easy credit any time soon. the optimists point out, on the other hand, that the american savings rate is already back up to 7%, which is close to its 30-year average. the pessimists say yes, but americans are going to be very cautious now and save more in the face of the uncertainty and hard times they foresee. so the key so understanding whether and when we will experience a real economic recovery around th

wonder because they are on the other side of pakistan. it would be a good strategic movement if india made the move towards bin laden, if he is still alive. another question, perhaps we are already monitoring bin laden? perhaps our intelligence has him on the phone all the time? could that be possible? guest: i wish it were, but it would speak to some kind of nefarious plot. if he were on the phone and we have not killed him. if we are listening to him on the phone we can geo-locate him and he would be yesterday's news. so, i seriously doubt we're listening to him. secondly, part of the problem we have in afghanistan is we have already allowed a large indian presence, both economically, and they are doing a lot of construction with people dressed as civilians but who are really military engineers. people in the u.s. do not realize the degree of paranoia between two nuclear-armed countries, pakistan and india. to allow an indian military forces into pakistan would turn the pakistan knees entirely away from us. -- the pakistanis away from us. it is interesting as an idea, but in the lon
night live alumnus chris kattan starring in a new ifc miniseries called bollywood hero. he goes to india to star in a movie. look at your moves, chris kattan. how did you learn those moves, by the way? >> those moves took me about seven years to learn. >> come on. >> no. seven weeks. >> you really went to india to shoot this? >> we shot in on location in mumbai, india. i went there for ten weeks. >> had you been before? >> no, it was an experience. >> quite the cultural shock. >> it was. but after ten weeks you get used to it. it is very beyond. it was intense but this was such a great, great project to do. it was just so much fun. as you said, i play a heightened version of myself. i go over there to break into the movies there. >> what do they make over you? >> in reality or on the show? >> in both. >> they're nice. they like me. i smile. >> how about in the movie? >> the movie? this movie? >> he gets the girl in the movie. >> yeah, i get the girl. it is actually a miniseries. three parts on ifc thursday, friday and saturday. >> that's not the girl you get, is it? >> no, that's the gra
